"I selected this product as I needed an FR downlight that would fit into a box section with intermittently spaced height restrictions preventing the use of the deeper units on the market. It looks superb and grips the ceiling snugly although the spring clips appear to be related to Arkwright's till - mind your fingers!
The only problem I encountered is with the cable grip, which has two thin tails to prevent it seperating from the connector - I removed the screws and opened the grip. Both tails snapped. This happened on two of the four units I purchased. It's only a very small problem though compared to the overall excellent look and apparent build quality of these units.
I downgraded to the 35W bulbs though as the 50W ones were too bright for the room I am using them in. The suction cup extractor is a quirky idea but seems to work. Just don't lose the extractor as the replacement bulbs don't have them in the box (but I didn't get them from Screwfix)"

Review 2 for Linolite Sylvania Fixed Round Low Voltage Fire Rated Downlight Polished Chrome 12V
"This is a very simple and elegant light fixture. There is no screw ring, spring or clamp to hold the bulb and get in the way of the light, so it works very well with wide-angle bulbs. The socket holds the bulb in position, and a suction cup is included to aid in removing the bulbs. A good-quality bulb is included too. The fixture is about half as tall as others of the same type, which helps if the space is tight. As with most recessed halogen lights, this takes "cool fit" aluminium reflector bulbs, not "cool beam" dichroic reflector bulbs."
